In his latest release, composer and oud master Joseph Tawadros goes totally solo in a special recording, transporting us into another world with the magical sounds of the oud (fretless Egyptian lute).
'It is my most important recording to date', Joseph says. 'I’ve been looking for the right time to record a solo album and I believe this recording has come at exactly the right time. It is a vulnerable and transparent body of work which hides none of my emotions and feelings as a musician and person. It really scares me, but excites me at the same time; something which is all apart of the beauty of music making and growth.'
Kahlil Gibran’s much-loved book, The Prophet is the inspiration behind Joseph’s 6th album. This literary classic, philosophically addresses topics such as love, pain, work, reason and passion, children and friendship through poetry, and Joseph has composed music relating to each topic.
